    How much square feet of water does a pair of black swans needs.

    Quote:one pictured above is good for 3-4 pair, a 25 foot diameter at least to be "happy" many keep them on much smaller ones though, but they are a more aquatic bird and dont like to spend a lot of time on the ground so more by far is better for them
